** [[spoiler: Button Gwinnett]] from the sidequest [[spoiler: Stealing Independence]], who is really a laughably weak Protectron that can be taken down by any weapon above 10mm pistol level, or, with a special perk, resetting his parameters back into a unprogrammed state and commanded to shutdown.

** The Mothership Zeta DLC takes place in an alien spaceship where you must form a crew to fight off the aliens who abducted you as well as fending off a rival alien spaceship that tries to destroy your ship after taking control of it in the climax. One of your companions is a cowboy from the Old Wild West era of American colonial history who seemingly got abducted by the aliens and ended up in this very ship that you and other folks are in. Two years after the release of the ''DLC'', a [[Film/CowboysAndAliens similar movie]] was released in theaters that details an otherworldly conflict between cowboys and aliens.

** [[AxCrazy Roy Phillips]] is a [[FantasticRacism rabid anti-human bigot]] trying to get into Tenpenny Tower through any means possible. When first approached, Phillips's initial plan is to use his feral ghouls to overrun Tenpenny Tower and slaughter everyone inside. Despite this, [[LackOfEmpathy Roy feels no empathy for his feral brethren]], believing them to be mindless freaks only good as guard dogs and cannon fodder. However, if the Lone Wanderer is able to come to a solution where the ghouls are peacefully allowed to move into Tenpenny Tower, Roy will seemingly relent hostilities, at least until a few days later where it's revealed he slaughtered everyone in the Tower anyway, regardless of whether they were anti-ghoul or not, [[ForTheEvulz for no reason]]. When confronted about this, Roy shows no guilt and tells the Wanderer to piss off [[UngratefulBastard before he murders the Wanderer too]]. Furthermore, if Burke is still alive and still plans on [[NukeEm nuking Megaton]], Roy will fully support Burke's plan so he can see that "smoothskin shithole" wiped off the earth.

*** It could also be said that she is misblamed. Since Amata is now the ''de faco'' Overseer, if not ''de jure'', she has to keep the tenuous peace the Vault now has from breaking out into another war and killing everyone in the Vault. To do so she has to kick out her best friend for years because the other Dwellers blame ''you'' for sending the Vault into chaos and won't enjoy having you back. If anyone's the asshole here, it's the other Vault Dwellers for choosing you to be their scapegoat as your father isn't around anymore to be the target of their hate.

** The anonymous Megaton villager who, once a day when you're outside in town, tells you how much everyone loves you and offers you a near-worthless item (though sometimes you'll get some basic ammo or a stimpack.)

* FamilyUnfriendlyAesop: [[spoiler: Even with the added ability to ask Charon or Fawkes activate Project Purity, the game calling the player a ''child'' for not doing it themselves. Apparently, it's better to throw your life away for the sake of following a father's example than to find a way to complete the objective and live, because sacrifice is the "greatest of virtues".]]

* BaseBreaker:
** Ashur and Wernher from ''The Pitt''. Due to the GreyAndGrayMorality of the DLC, the fandom is noticeably split between which one should be considered the ''real'' hero and villain of the story, while some consider ''both'' men to be bad people and differ on who is the ''[[LesserOfTwoEvils least]]'' evil option.

** [[spoiler:Autumn]], despite being the FinalBoss, can be killed with one clean critical to the head, and the two bodyguards nearby are just the same Enclave troopers you've been gunning down all game. You can even talk your way to victory if your Speech skill is high enough. No bloodshed needed.

** A BlackComedy version, Mister Lopez in Rivet City is contemplating suicide. If the player agrees to help him, he's flung backwards off the flight deck with the implication you push him. However, he's flung directly away from the player, not off the deck, so if you talk to him from the side, this results in him getting thrown backwards on the balcony, somehow dead from nothing.
